I am currently reading Don Yaeger’s new book Greatness. It’s a terrific read and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is striving for excellence and wants to leave behind their mediocre-filled lives.
I just finished Chapter 7 entitled “Visualize Victory” and it is my favorite chapter thus far. It describes multiple athletes’ rituals of visualizing their performance well in advance of the actual competition. Therefore, when it’s competition day, they are prepared for almost any scenario because they have already visualized it and reacted to it through this visualization process.
The book contains “16 Charactistics of True Champions” and I can’t wait to dive into the remaining nine of them. If I come across a particularly appealing concept like I did above, I will post my thoughts on this Blog.
In the meantime, pick up a copy of Don’s book!
